    AR question...

    Ok, so I get that AR-15's are made by a bunch of different manufacturers.

    What I'm wondering is: there are a lot of AR accessories out there - magazines, stocks, etc.etc.etc.. Are those accessories generally compatible across the board with any AR no matter who the manufacturer is?

    Generally, yes, but with certain exceptions. Usually, if a part will not fit "standard" AR specs, it will be annotated somewhere in the description of the aftermarket part.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Short answer yes, but do your homework on the part/accessory.
